    Default Best method of advertising-advice

    What is the best way to advertise on a pedicab without painting it? Would you use a car magnet, or car sticker? Especially if the advertisements would be changing regularly.

    I used vinyl print stuck onto corex board. Bit tricky to fit the first couple times, but very cost effective. Heavy duty velcro was ideal for holding the boards onto the rickshaw cab. Fantastically quick to swap between gigs.

    If the signs don't have have to be removed you could fit vinyl directly to your pedicab, then mount corex boards over them for other gigs.

    Hey Rjoiner, good to see you still hovering around the forum, and great advice. Hi Handy7091 and welcome to the forum, I think we call corex, sintra in N. America, and velcroing or zap strapping it down is the way it's normally done. You'll have to velcro it on to a mainstreet as the bike is not really built with advertising in mind, this is the most cost effective way to run your advertising campaign.

    You'll be getting heaps, no loads of corporations beating down your door to advertise at the Utah Shakespeare festival, so you'll probably not want to use the vinyl method which is very difficult to install, takes a long time to wrap and remove, can damage the original finish of the fibreglass , and is way more expensive, it does look better though.

    The better pedicabs on the market have little boards that are inset into the frame so that cheaper sintra boards can be velcro'd over them. Have a look at how Ecotaxi have done it.

    I actually saw one with sintra board covered in, not sure if fiber glass or acrylic.
